The Fiesta Taco Salad

The Fiesta Taco Salad is probably one of the most underestimated items on the Taco Bell menu. This item seems overlooked because many people refuse “salads” and accuse them of being healthy, bland or all around no good. The Fiesta Taco Salad is an entirely different story. Its a crispy tortilla bowl filled from bottom to top with beans, lettuce, the meat of your choice, sour cream, cheddar cheese and tomatoes. It also comes with salsa and crunchy lime-seasoned tortilla strips on the side.


The most important part of this salad is the edible bowl that holds all of the ingredients. It bears no resemblance to any of Taco Bell’s other shells, which is very important. Rather than a regular a corn bowl, the Fiesta Taco Salad has a flaky, almost buttery bowl. Without the shell, this taco salad would be mediocre at best.

Protip: If you want more of a creamy flavor, try adding Guacamole. If you’re looking for some spice, go with Jalapeño sauce.


The salsa and flavored tortilla strips make the Fiesta Taco Salad even more unique. The salsa consists of diced onions and tomato chunks and the tortilla strips have just a tinge of lime-flavoring. These both add to the overall flavor without taking away from the other ingredients.


Verdict: Despite being overlooked, the Fiesta Taco Salad is a winning item any day of the week. The flaky bowl and added salsa make this item stand out. The Fiesta Taco Salad is great if you’re looking to change things up a bit.

    It’s funny that you say the salad shell bears no resemblance to any of Taco Bell’s other shells. It is made out of the exact same thing as the mexican pizza shells only from a larger circle.

    In my experience, the Taco Salad shell is a different shell entirely. While you may be correct (or it may vary in your area), I have reason to believe that the Mexican Pizza Shell and the Fiesta Taco Salad shell are rather different. The Mexcan Pizza / Tostada shell can be seen here while the Fiesta Taco Salad shell can be seen here. I will admit that they are very similar, but I wouldn’t say they’re the same.
